Are you highly critical of yourself? Do you often feel like you're lacking in some way or just "not enough yet"? I regularly work with people judge themselves harshly. Many people begin psychotherapy with the belief that they need to get rid or excise a part of themselves in order to feel better. This just isn't true.

There is plenty of room for every aspect of your personhood. Perfection is not an achievable goal but wholeness is. I would like to help you learn to accept yourself and trust your own inner wisdom. You are so much more than your performance or your appearance.

I have a warm and down-to-earth style and I have been practicing therapy for over 18 years. I would like to help you honor your true feelings and discover healthy entitlement; your needs and feelings are just as significant and valuable as anyone else's.
